Pets 'n' Stuff | Puppy's First Christmas

This is my final Christmas 2014 post. I know you've probably had enough, but I wanted to tell you about what I got my pets and I'd rabbited on in my last post and didn't fit it in. If you missed my last post about A Merry Tipping Christmas, please check it out here. Anyway! On with this post.

It was Edwin's first Christmas, and we don't usually get the pets Christmas presents. That sounds so Grinchy, but in the past getting in on the grub has been their present. I remember the year before last when my rats were healthy (RIP my little ladies), I made them up their own little bowl of Christmas dinner. They LOVED it. However, this year we decided to do it a little different and they all got presents. I guess maybe because I'm getting older and a little broody (despite not wanting actual kids), Christmas shopping for them was a way to play house. We wrapped the presents and set them out late on Christmas Eve before we went to bed, much like my parents do for us.

Edwin wasn't exactly full of the Christmas spirit at first. He just wanted to go to bed and sleep like any other night. We had to carry him to open our presents at 4am. Baby and Berty were more awake, and I don't know where the cats were. Eventually the flurry of Christmas paper and excitement helped Edwin wake up. Baby didn't want to open her presents herself, but we gave Berty and Edwin one each. Although they were great at tearing the paper off, they started fighting over each other's. So much for festive cheer! We ended up putting off opening their presents.



It wasn't until Boxing Day I actually opened their presents. We were all too shattered on Christmas Day. I wish I had got photos of Edwin tearing off the wrapping, but he kept lifting every present I gave him and running out of the room to go hide and do it. I guess he's not used to being allowed to rip stuff up. Here's a little video though!


So here is all their presents together. The cats both got a packet of Dreamies each. You can see Effy sitting waiting for hers thinking 'Can you hurry this up please...?' and the rest of the treats are for Baby and Edwin to share, over an extended period of time because they're both actually on diets right now. The monkey teddy is Edwin's new girlfriend because he's too big to hump his old sheep girlfriend. The turkey is also Edwin's and the ball and robin are Baby's. However, she wasn't interested in the robin so Edwin claimed it too. She played with the Santa ball a bit though. All presents were bought from Pets At Home.


They also got two other chews, but I gave Baby and Edwin them before I took the photo above. I thought this little bag of coal chew was perfect for Edwin. He's been pretty bad lately. Baby's was a little Christmas star lolly chew. I tried to take a photo, but she wouldn't stay still long enough.

So yeah, all and all I think they enjoyed their Christmas and Edwin definitely enjoyed the presents. I definitely think we'll do something similar next year too. I love a new tradition!

I can't believe this is my last Christmas post. I've had a wonderful Christmas this year, and it's been an awesome first blogging Christmas too.



I hope you and your pets had a wonderful time too.
Did you do anything special for your fur babies?
If so, tell me what!

  1. This is sooo cute! Your cat in that picture, looks like our cat Midget.

    We usually get the pets gifts every year. ChiChi was more afraid of our boxes and wrapping paper than anything else! Poor thing didn't know where to go for safety! By the end of it all, my dad grabbed her stocking and gave her dental bones that she just loves to pieces! She usually eats them on the couch but since everything was still up there from dad's gifts, she went on the floor. Lol

    1. Aha, thank you. She's called Effy, or Ethel. This is one of the best pics I've got of her. She's sometimes not very photogenic. Lol.

      Awh, poor ChiChi! Edwin loved the wrapping. He loved being allowed to tear stuff up. I could probably have bought him toilet rolls and wrapped them up for Christmas and he'd have had the best time. Edwin loves dental sticks too, but he loves all food. Lol.

  2. Great post :) I bought my pet doggie mince pies which he didn't eat, he seems to like human food way more than actual dog food. Hope you had a fab Christmas Sara :) xx

    1. Thanks! Are they dog mince pies or something? Edwin likes all food, but Baby and sister's dog prefers human food. I don't like Edwin and Baby eating human food because they both need to lose weight. D: So they're on a strict diet now. Hope you had an awesome Christmas too! :) xo

    1. Hehe, thank you. I wish the video was a little better. I didn't really think about using it on my blog at the time. I'll have to check yours out when you post it. :)

  4. I love seeing other pet owners spoil their furry babies! My dogs went mental over stockings, it was ridiculous to watch. Happy New Year!

    1. I know. I dunno why I didn't have Christmas for them sooner. It was great this year. Happy new year to you too! :)
